Access to NHS Dentistry
Posted on 11 Aug 2021
Access to NHS Dentistry is currently limited during the pandemic as all dentists have been asked to stop all routine “face-to-face” dental care.
However, if you need urgent dental care, help is at hand:
CALL your dental practice: They will give you advice over the telephone and make arrangements for you if you need to be seen.
If you don’t have a dentist, find your nearest dentist and CALL them. You can search for your nearest dentist at: https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-dentist
You can also contact NHS 111:
- Call 111 when it's less urgent than 999
You can ask for a translator if you need one.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
If you’re deaf, you can:
- call 18001 111 on a textphone
Do not worry if you have COVID-19 symptoms, appropriate arrangements can be made to see you if you need urgent dental care.
